I will not answer in detail to this RT (computer time is scarce during 
holidays), but let me say that I'm happy to see your "balkanization 
paranoia" going down. As you say, this community has something special, 
and I think it has already proven several times its health. The recent 
XMLForm story is a good example of that : a block gets "damaged" because 
its main (if not only) contributor decides to leave. And we see better 
reimplementations emerge (JXForm, thanks to Chris). I'm confident that 
for the particular problem of flow abstractions, the community and 
Darwin will do their job as usual. And if not, the few people involved 
in today's discussions will take care of it ;-)

To all : I am the "other people". I visited Bertrand on tuesday, and 
this was not only a meeting between Cocoon people, since both families 
were involved [1]. This was really great.
